Overcoming Setbacks

In a lot of ways, I feel like most of my life I’ve had nothing but setbacks. Goals for the future that were put off by someone else, or just never achieved. And you know what? It flat out sucks. Bad. Because the more setbacks in your life, the more you start to feel as if nothing is going to happen.

So how do you get past that feeling? How do you keep moving forward when everything is going wrong? Perseverance. Hope. Strength.

One more month. I am just about officially one month away from vacation. And I’ve yet to bring it up to my mother. Whoops. Honestly, it’s mostly because I know she’ll get mad at first. She always does. “Why didn’t you invite me, too?” is what she’ll eventually ask. I love her, but like, come on? But just like a band-aid, I’m going to have to rip it off.

I’m so happy I’m off today and tomorrow. This past weekend was hell. For starters, it was gorgeous outside – first few days of the season where it was 70 degrees – so, naturally, everyone was buying beer. Which meant that every time I tried to go do something at work, I couldn’t, because we just had people walking in every minute. And when I can’t get things done, it stresses me out. To top it off, my other cashiers requested this weekend off previously. A1 had her softball games, and D and MJ were doing something, I dunno.

April feels like it’s been so long already. Maybe it’s just because things feel like they’re finally getting real around here, or something. Between my mom’s freak out about me being with C, and work, and everyone basically asking me what I’m planning on doing, I just don’t even know anymore.

Allure – March Beauty Box

After my last Birchbox review (here), I decided to switch to something new and different. Birchbox is not a bad subscription service, however, I wanted the chance to try something different and something had to go.

I had been seeing ads for the Allure Beauty Box all over my Facebook, and through subscription feeds. It made me go to their website and check out what it was, what the reviews of it were like. The difference from Birchbox? Everyone gets the same/similar items. There are one or two differences. However, they are really good items, and the box is worth more than the $15 you pay for it. And, you can get your first box for only $10 when you sign up.

If you sign up for Allure in March, you still receive the March box. Which is what happened for me, even though I didn’t receive it until April. I signed up on March 20th, my box was shipped on the 30th, received my box on April 2nd.

I’m tired. So tired. This week has felt forever long, and I’m slacking so much on blogging because honestly, I’m stressed. Work sucks, we keep losing people. Forcing the rest of us to take on more hours and work longer. A1 tried to help me out by taking my shift on Tuesday for me, and then right this morning she told me that I can come in at 12 and she’ll work the morning for me. And then she told me her game got moved to Sunday and asked me to work her shift.

Splendies – First Review

For the last couple of month’s, I’ve been seeing this subscription plan show up on my Facebook and Instagram. Maybe it’s because I’ve been looking up different subscription plans, and let’s face it, everything gets tracked with your cookies and all of that, so they know, and they show you things you’re interested in. Splendies is something that I’ve been interested in trying for awhile, and I finally just went for it!
